Keywords: Ammonia, Emissions, Poultry Housing, air quality
Emission of ammonia gas from broiler houses has become an issue of concern. Yet most
of the research that has been done on ammonia in poultry houses is more concerned with in-house
air quality than with emissions, and most of the research has occurred in northern Europe where
climatic conditions and perhaps management are different from that in the southeastern United
States which is the area that produces the largest amount of poultry in the US.
